So exciting to see everyones Betas rising!! And I agree that women that don't go through fertility treatment do not go through the agony that we do!! It has been one meltdown after another...Symptoms lessen, I think I am going to miscarry. I tiny bit of spotting, and I literally almost woke up my husband to tell him we lost the baby...But they say 30% of normal pregnancies having spotting in the first trimester!! One day at a time...But it didn't help that 3 women in the September babies Facebook group i am in miscarried within 24 hours at about the same time that I did the first time!

I could not agree more!

My ultrasound was awesome!! I was so anxious since i had found out at my 6 week 2 day ultrasound that I had miscarried my first pregnancy...I was alone that time and almost passed out after it hit me. Worst drive home ever. This time I told my husband he didn't have to come (even though I wanted him there) since it is hard for him to leave work early, but he surprised me by showing up because he knew how important it was to me...Saw that beautiful flutter of a heartbeat, and baby measured at 6 weeks 2 days which is exactly how far along I am!!! My Doc told me to relax and stop freaking out. Next ultrasound is in 2 weeks!


Me: 40 - Only one tube and low ovarian reserve. Quality is great though!
Hubby: 53 - Semi-successful vasectomy reversal. Count is low due to possible partial blockage. Have 5 vials of frozen sperm from TESE, so IVF is the only option.

IVF/ICSI #1 - Started stims on 4/1/15 - Only four eggs retrieved, three fertilized, and two transferred on day 3. Third egg did not make it to freeze... BFP, but miscarried at 7 weeks due to chromosome abnormalities (it was a boy! 👼🏼😥💙)
D&C on 5/27/15, first period 32 days later.

IVF/ICSI #2 - Started stims on 8/10/15 - Only two eggs retrieved this time, but only one was mature...But it fertilized, and we did a three day transfer with assisted hatching!! Doc said it was an excellent 8 cell embryo...nothing to freeze again.
BFN...gutting!

IVF/ICSI #3 - Started stims on 1/4/16 - Three follicles this time and 3 eggs retrieved, but only 2 made it to transfer. Three day transfer of two 8 cell embryos with assisted hatching on 1/19, beta scheduled for 1/29!

BFN...*sigh* 

 

IVF/ICSI #4 - Started stims on 12/3/16 - Doing what is called a mini IVF cycle this time which is slightly lower dose of stims, less monitoring (only 2 ultrasounds from start of stims to ER ), and less expensive - Seven follicles (woohoo!!!) which was a shock!! 5 eggs retrieved on 12/14, 4 fertilized (ICSI) and 3dt of all 4 with assisted hatching on 12/17 (12 cell, 10 cell, 8 cell and 7 cell with no fragmenting).  Beta scheduled for 12/27!

BFP on 12/23, only 6dp3dt!!!! Beta on 12/27 (10dp3dt) was 143, Beta on 12/29 over 400!! First U/S on 1/6 to see how many took...

congrats Kerber! That's great news. Did they tell you the heartbeat rate and the crl measurement? Your clinic doesn't do another u/s at 7 weeks?

Crl measurement was .55 cm, but they didn't listen to the heartbeat this time...they just showed it flickering. They aren't doing another until 8 weeks 2 days.

Hi Everyone
so went in this morning for my 7w2d u/s and the heartbeat was between 108-112. The crl was at 8.1mm

Congrats! That sounds good to me!
Didn't you ask the person doing the ultrasound or your doctor if those results were good?

Have an appt with my gp in another 1.5 hrs. Here the u/s tech doesn't tell u what is the range etc. u need to consult your doc.

But during my first round of ivf when I had to induce the m/c...The heartbeat was at this range.
Am pretty sure my gp will send me in for another u/s at week 8 to compare the results.
Am thankful for the heartbeats just not sure what the range should be.
